Phantom Dust

Panzer Dragoon may not be the only Yukio Futatsugi game that the developer wants to revive for a future sequel. In an interview with USgamer, he mentioned the idea of a sequel to Phantom Dust.

Phantom Dust was an Xbox game that mixed card deck mechanics with arena action. It managed to get a considerable cult following, but wasn’t really a hit with the larger, more Western-game-oriented Xbox audience.

Futatsugi thought that Kickstarter might be a good option for the new Phantom Dust. Unfortunately, since Kickstarter’s terms of use currently only support projects in the US and the UK, Futatsugi would have a major obstacle. Even if he partnered with someone else, Japanese fans might have a tough time interacting with Kickstarter as well. On top of that, Microsoft still owns the rights to Phantom Dust, limiting console options.

Still, this does look promising. After Crimson Dragon, the unexpected spiritual successor to Panzer Dragoon, is finished, we at least have some idea where Futatsugi may turn his sights next.
